The City Now City Future season opens at the Museum of London on 18 May.
My Point Forward by Blast Theory.
Step into a corner of London and look around. Gaze at the towers in the distance. Pick out the path trodden through the park or the eddy in the river. And then jump decades into the future to imagine a new London and your place within it.
Featuring a series of short films, this interactive installation by pioneering artists group Blast Theory invites you to add your narrative of the city to build a personal and meditative portrait of the future.
Part of #CityNowCityFuture season.

Exciting but gross news! A chunk of the fatberg that made headlines a few months back will go on display at the @museumoflondon next year. Just in time to remind you of all the food you ate over Christmas 😳 #museum #london #fatberg #gross #citynowcityfuture

Put down that mince pie! In 2018, as part of our City Now City Future season, we will display a section of the giant fatberg that haunted our sewers earlier this year; a visceral reminder of the pressures our modern society places on London's historical infrastructures. More details will follow in the new year. .
Find out more about the fatberg on our website: http://ow.ly/ruQ230h9xd3 .

We are closed on: 24, 25 & 26 December, but there is still time to see our free display #UncommonCurrency until 21 January 2018. .
This display looks at alternative currencies and business models created by Londoners and why they have been inspired to create them. .
This 1910 penny coin has ‘Votes for Women’ stamped on it. At this time women were denied the vote. Defacing a coin was a serious criminal offence, but low value coins were rarely recalled by the bank. This coin could have ended up in the hands of anyone in the country, meaning the Suffragettes message was widely circulated. It was just one tactic used by Suffragettes to campaign for the vote. .

Songdo in South Korea is a 'smart city' built in one go to make modern life pleasant and easy. This includes large amounts of security surveillance which residents Jeon and Yujin accept in return for their safety. Do you think surveillance in London offers a good balance of safety and privacy? .
Find out more about surveillance in modern cities in our free exhibition The City is Ours, closing soon on 2 January 2018. .
In this image from 1966-69 we see two Securicor officers. Securicor, a security services company, began in 1935 after Edward Shortt founded 'Night Watch Services' supplying four guards who rode bicycles around London. The company was taken over in 1939 and expanded with the guards becoming security officers. .

Maybe of interest to epidemiologists and population health specialists too! ... Geography fans and teachers will find much to enjoy in our free exhibition The City is Ours. The exhibition looks at urban living now and how it might change in the future. Open until 2 January 2018. .
Section 28 of the 1889 original Descriptive Map of London Poverty. This section covers the area around Spitalfields, Wapping and Whitechapel. .
Charles Booth produced the map as part of his survey into life and labour in London. The map identifies the social character of every street in London through colour coding. Eight different colours are used to identify 8 different classes of society.
Black = lowest class, vicious and semi-criminal
Dark blue = very poor and casual laboureres in chronic want
Light blue = the 'poor' with an income of 18s to 21s a week for a moderate family.
Purple = street with mixed social class - with some comfortable and others poor.
Pink = 'fairly comfortable with good ordinary earnings
Red = middle class and 'well-to-do'
Yellow/Gold = mainly upper-middle and upper class, wealthy families. .

What does a city sound like? .
This installation, Pulse of the city, converts mobile signals into ambient sounds. The recordings were taken at different times in Paris creating an aural portrait of the city. Listen for free in The city is Ours: http://ow.ly/gXrS30gCnKi .
This machine is an example of the Type AT Graphophone introduced in 1898. The Graphophone was based on the design for Thomas Edison's phonograph. It was originally meant for use in business for office dictation but the early 20th century saw a rise in the demand for sound recordings as entertainment. .

Wooden waste floating on a disused canal in 1973.
.
Today the canals are used for leisure and frequently a solution to those looking for, sometimes cheaper, housing in London. They are no longer used as they were, to transport goods around the country. .
In 1968, under Barbara Castle’s Transport Act, the leisure value of canals was officially recognised, and public money was spent on making them suitable for recreation. The year after this picture was taken Camden Council, followed Westminster's lead and opened the towpaths within its boundaries to the public. .

Delirious New Wick by Lawrence Lek
.
Visual artist, Lawrence Lek has created Bonus Levels, a series of play-able video games depicting a dreamy, utopian, but recognisable London. The display is part of our City Now City Future season.
.
Delirious New Wick is a 3D animated virtual environment of the zone surrounding London’s 2012 Olympic Park. As regeneration strategies and commercial property developments spread over East London, the player is invited to witness the conflict between the areas past and its future.
.
Bonus Levels is free to visit at the Museum of London until 3 January 2018. .

Lead alloy badge in the shape of a Tudor rose, early 16th century.
.
In 1500 Henry VII provided funds to the Hospital of the Savoy on the Strand to establish free accommodation to 100 homeless men. The wardens at the hospital were issued with a Tudor rose badge to remind the homeless and the general public of his generosity. Every bed had a coverlet embroidered with a rose and portcullis. Henry VII created the Tudor rose when he became king, ending the Wars of the Roses. He joined his Lancastrian red rose with the Yorkist white rose after his marriage to Elizabeth of York, daughter of Edward IV.
.
See it on display for free at the Museum of London.

Make sure you visit The City is Ours, our free major exhibition for contemporary views on homelessness and poor housing from people who have experienced these situations around the world. .

Key to private garden, 1830-1837.
.
The development of the Grosvenor estate and Knightsbridge in the 18th century created the demand for private access to Hyde Park from wealthy local residents. Many of the grand houses had gardens that backed onto the park. In the 1790s a number of private gates were built in the surrounding wall. The key to each gate was licensed to the individual owner by George III. .
Hyde Park was owned by the crown and managed by the Office of Works. The park was redeveloped in the 1820s and gradually the wall was replaced by iron railings and gates so residents could see the park from their homes.
.
In our recent event The London salon: protest, author Anna Minton discussed the continuing privatisation of public space. Areas such as retail parks, gardens and other places where the public are permitted are often actually privately owned space in which we are expected to act a certain way. For most people these 'rules' are invisible, and we are only aware that they exist when we break them. For example, we are permitted to walk, dine and shop in retail parks but not sleep in them. This rule may only be experienced by a homeless person looking for somewhere to rest; highlighting not only the ownership of space but how class plays a part in how we can experience these places. .

Join us on 10 October for our next Salon: edgelands, that looks at what is happening at the edges of London and how it affects the city centre. Search The London Salon: edgelands on our website, link in bio. Part of our City Now City Future season. .

Space House in Kemble Street in the London borough of Camden, 1967. Architect Richard Seifert designed the building to be drum-shaped to reduce stresses on the building and to reduce engineering costs. The building was originally planned to be twice the height and to include a hotel but Camden County Council objected and so a smaller tower was built. Seifert also designed the Centre Point tower and Tower 42 in London.

The City is Ours, a free exhibition looks at city living, the problems and the possible solutions. .
